It’s not what you paint. It’s how you paint it. And that’s the challenge for every artist. And for me? It’s simple really. I want to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.”
As of a few weeks ago I have an art studio again and so I’m busy creating as much as I can! Watch this space!
It’s so frustrating sometimes how life gets all on top of you and you can’t seem to find time to do the things that you really want to do! Tomorrow you say to yourself, and that’s what i’m saying now - tomorrow I WILL pick up a brush again and I will paint something - anything - at this point I really don’t care what it is!>
You may have noticed I haven’t posted anything for a while, or you may be finding me on the World Wide Web for the first time. Either way I want you both to know - I haven’t stopped creating.
It’s been a busy summer - after the initial relax from the madness that was graduation, I then had to find a place to live and decide what was next in the adventure of life. So now, as I settle into the autumn season, I’ve left those troubles behind. I find myself settling into a nice house in West Yorkshire, and making lots of new friends.
Throughout the university experience I found my relationship with art was becoming stranded and tested. So now after this sabbatical from that part of my life, I find myself ready to embrace it again and face the challenge of putting myself out there in the world and developing a marketable practice. Challenge indeed. Anyone reading this who considers themselves an artist of any kind understands the fear of putting your thoughts and ideas out there. It’s very personal.
Challenge accepted. See you soon.
